I have seen them at Long Pond, Kent Pond, Mundy Pond, Cochrane Pond Road, Forest Pond, and CBS. They are bright and colorful! It is quite likely with all of the leaves filling out in the trees that you may hear this little bird's song before you see it.
Often when a bird sings, it will puff up its feathers, particularly on the top of its head. From my experience, a singing bird also quivers a little. This means that as a photographer, I must be particularly steady so as not to blur the image too much.
A singing bird is a happy bird and may sit in the same place for quite some time, warbling away.
The Yellow Warbler feeds on insects and often nests in Willow trees.
